Top Reasons to Go to Cozumel

Diving the Great Mayan Reef: Tropical fish, coral, and other marine creatures enliven the 1,000-km-long (621-mile-long) Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, which stretches from Cozumel to Central America.

Slowing down: Stroll along a white-sand beach, then explore the gardens above and below the waters at Chankanaab. Or just grab a table at a sidewalk café and watch the world go by.

Savoring local life: San Miguel’s Plaza Central is a Sunday-evening hot spot for locals who gather for music and dancing. On any major holiday you’ll see parades, processions, and food stands with seasonal treats.

Visiting Mayan sites: Take a refresher course on Mayan culture past and present at the Museo de la Isla de Cozumel, then explore the temples dedicated to Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of childbirth, fertility, and healing, at San Gervasio.
